there is an entire body of case law to look to for guidance that has weighed many kinds of different kinds of misconduct against the professional standards and responsibilities with the person who committed it, and determined the situations where there is a relationship and there isn't a relationship. and, frankly, if you think about the facts of this case, it's not a hard call. does committing a crime of violence against your wife and pleading guilty to it, and suffering a three-year criminal conviction relate to the subject matter of a chief law enforcement officer, who runs the jails and helps administer the correctional system in san francisco? yes. yes. upon that is not an unpredictable, vague, surprised relationship. yes, there's a clear subject matter relationship. most cases will be clear. there will be cases on the boundaries where, you know, the decision-makers are going to have to exercise judgment. but there's a three -- there's a tripar tight system with checks and balances to make sure that the decision is considered, and there is also court review after that, in case the --
misdemeanor conviction relates to the duties of the sheriff as a law enforcement officer. >> supervisor kim: so then you're adding to the test then the second portion of your test would be a relationship test, plus the ethics commission would have to determine that it falls below the standard of decency for that office. >in relationship to the sheriff's office, but if we were to assume that it is standards in relationship to your specific office, for the sheriff, it would be the relationship to his office, plus the -- what common sense would judge as falling before the standard of decency? this is where i get stuck is when does it fall below the standard of decency? a dui could be -- as a misdemeanor. you didn't hurt anyone per se, but you could have. you could have killed someone on the road, right? so i guess that's where i would like more clarity. when does it fall below the standard of decency for the sheriff, if we were to argue that there are standards? >> well, the mayor submitted the testimony of an expert, this person was the chief -- is william -- the chief of police of the san di
standards that are expected of a chief law enforcement officer. now, commissioner hur mentioned that the chief testified that any misdeed at all would be official misconduct, if committed by a sheriff. i don't think that's entirely accurate. i think what the chief testified to is that -- is that the sheriff is expected, under the professional and ethical standards associated with his particular office, to avoid most forms of dishonesty, that behavior -- accountability, being a poor role model. there are many kinds of wrongful behavior that don't rise to the level of criminals that are wrongful for a sheriff. but at the end of the day, i don't think -- i think you're posing the more difficult question than the relationship test. your question is when is the -- when is the misconduct severe enough that we should consider it official misconduct. and that isn't a function of the relationship test. conduct may relate to the duties of office without being so severe that it should rise to the level of official misconduct. i think that that -- the charter does not offer you an answer to
that some future mayor will be -- not by the rule of law but the temptation to remove a political adversary. removing an elected while not in office iscq.c4 not justice. if any case cry out for a bright line rule, for a clear and unambiguous application for the law to the fact it is this case. i will turn it over to shepherd kopp. thank you. >> president chiu: will remind members of the public, the first rule of this chamber is for members of the public not to express either applause or other statements. thank you. mr. kopp. >> thank you. good afternoon, members of the board, president. i'm shepherd kopp and along with mr. wagner i've been representing sheriff ross mirkarimi during these proargs. i want to discuss why we strongly believe that we don't need to draw from other jurisdictions as the mayor has, in order to arrive at a definition of official misconduct, that works in san francisco, and that is workable. and that has been tested. and the reason that we have come back time and again to the case involving commissioner mazzola is because, in that case, we saw board of supervisors sit
to suspend the sheriff was without basis in the law and why you must ultimately reinstate the sheriff. ross mirkarimi campaigned on the power of redemption. he's been a key proponent of restorative justice in this city. but there is no question that on december 31st, 2011, ross mirkarimi made a serious and terrible mistake. and how did he deal with that mistake? he immediately apologized to his wife. he entered into counseling. he apologized to the people of san francisco. he pled guilty to a criminal offense. all of that underscores the responsibility that rossq]j terrible mistake that he made on new year's eve last year. and as a result of that mistake, several months from his wife and son. he was suspended without pay, with no means to provide for hi family. his entire life's work was destroyed almost in an instant. he's beenwácf described by the r and the mayor's attorneys with the most inflammatory and prejudicial rhetoric, yet at the end of the day, the punishment does not fit theyxúw crime. this afternoon, i'm going to spend a fe7%g minutes telling u about why this case is differ
, neither the sheriff, supervisor, or any elected official is above the the law. however, what we also have the opportunity to demonstrate is that serving in one of these positions does not deem a person unworthy of redemption. to declare public officials don't deserve second chances goes against we are as a city. personal conduct from the previous mayor on do unto civil servants. we have been open minded by allowing people with criminal records to reengage with society responsibly and be accountable for their actions. whether a public official or a public servant, a member of the board or a member of the public, we all deserve the opportunity to bring about positive changes. finally, sheriff mirkarimi made an egregious mistake, one that has had serious personal professional and legal consequences. his actions were un undeniably wrong and has taken treatments toward court mandated resolution. however based on instructions provided to my by voters of san francisco through the charter i cannot find that his actions were
as a little bit being dragged over a wooden fence? because that's what happened to me. i don't have a law degree like many of you do but i believe my constitutional right under the law has been violated because someone involved in this case got two days in court for allegations that were nowhere near what happened to me. i want to know why gina flores was given two days in court. i'm here to support reinstatement of ross mirkarimi. because we need his leadership yesterday. i want to ask a question perhaps to invoke a little bit of humor. i wonder who is the biggest liar, mayor edwin lee, the san francisco chronicle, or mitt romney. >> president chiu: next speaker please. >> hi. my name is kathy black, executive director ofwc]%u la ca de los madres. the facts matter.41q$ the sheriff admitting a violent act against his wife.#[t he pled guilty to false imprisonment in a domestic violence quais. we have not been surprised by the minimize of the injury and unwillingness to takeÑ2 responsibility and blaming others. in front of you today we stand for victim(abq safety. it is also up to us to
this decision to assure the public that i am aware of the long-lasting impacts there will be on the law, the sheriff, and his family. the community of domestic violence prevention advocates, the over all moral of the city and county of san francisco now and in the future. whatever the outcome my hope is that all of us, as residents of this city, will use this as an opportunity to fine-tune our moral compass, to lean more toward honor, nobility, justice and compassion. with that said, i think it is important to note the process that i went through in evaluating the issue. when determining whether to sustain the charges as issued by the mayor, and recommended by the ethics commission i worked backwards. i thought of it in the context of, in order to remove the sheriff, what would be necessary. and in my opinion, the removal of any elected official from office requires that the mayor supply evidence that demonstrates with great certainty that the charter prescribed definition of official misconduct was violated. so thes
carefully. the language that defines official misconduct as bad conduct that violates laws related to a particular office or to all public offices. a charge of official misconduct must logically contain a description of a particular conduct or behavior, and a reference to an ethics or conflict of interest law. it is clear that no evidence has been presented that the sheriff's behavior is official misconduct. look at the mayor's charges, amended charges, brief, or whatever document you wish. listen to the endless drama of commission hearings. there are no charges of official misconduct. there is no action paired with citation of relevant law that has been broken. charges of official misconduct are the emperor's new clothes. >> president chiu: next speaker. >> hi. my name's teresa cooper. and i worked on ross' campaign. and it really hurts my heart to see what's going on in my city. i've never supported anyone in this city, never got involved in politics. but i felt ross was right. and i went with that as a healer. i was one of the best ones at rubberbanding, okay. i've really truste
including community leader sam ladder. after graduating from u.c. berkeley and hastings law school, bob joined a family firm and became active in numerous civic organizations, particularly within the jewish community as well as on our san francisco human rights commission. he also had a love of politics and successfully ran the mccarthy campaign for the board of supervisors. and i know that he will be missed dearly by the community and his family. my third in memoriam is for gary cray who is known by many in the telegraph hill community, my district, as the filbert steps gardner. gary tended to the gardens of the filbert steps, which is one of our city's great hidden treasures for more than three decades. and he took care of the sprawling garden as a volunteer. it was truly a labor of love for him and he was never paid a dime for t. he worked his hearts -- poured his heart into his work to create a clean, green and serene space that many in my neighborhood and throughout the city have grown to love and appreciate. in addition to caring for gardens, he was also someone who was dedicated
. the -- figuratively above the law is over the police chief and thek! sheriff. i was disappointed that the the opportunity to subpoena hear her testimony that she gave mayor lee that he should dismiss ross mirkarimi as a wife-beater. this testimony is in -- that commissioner renne tabbed is merely hear say and the worst ramblings of a first year law student. it's disappointing we have not heard ivory madison speak. the -- in the commission hearings, i attended, the question was brought up of the presumption of guilt, how many times do you beat your wife, mr. mirkarimi. and, also, i heard that the finding that sentence is evidence of guilt. the sentence is not evidence of guilt. this all unfortunately began at a meeting at the cafe -- four weeks before the -- >> president chiu: thank you very much. >> good evening,zez supervisors. obviously a long one. i want to thank you all for your endurance here. my name is gus feldman a field represent with seiu 10-1. as we move forward in the night on this matter i want you to please consider the following questions. numberguwuv one, have the

francisco has a sheriff who is able and willing to respect the laws that apply to all of us, and to adhere to standards that we expect from leaders. to those who say don't take away my vote, i would like to say, and those who feel that ross is being unfairly targeted, i would like to say that had it been known that he lacks the integrity necessary for this job, i would not have voted for him, and i would suggest that those who feel that they are being deprived of their votes look to ross as the person responsible for taking away their votes. thank you. >> president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> good afternoon. my name is -- herrera. i've been a domestic violence advocate for six years, helping the community. i am concerned with this process has communicated to victims of domestic violence. every day we are working hard to make sure that victims are here from all over the world. and clear about their rights and understand that they have the right to be free from domestic violence, abuse, and control, from their partners. if ross mirkarimi is not removed from office after admitting abusi
proceeding, this is not a court of law.q9j)Ñ if there's any parallel, it's probably an impeachment president bill clinton. i think most of the people in this rg÷yñ and most of you would agree we saw how that process was terribly abused because ofh0 where a personal -- a repugnant was suddenly put into the national limelight and made into something that basicallye"o kidnapped the entire country. i think in some ways this is what's going on here. i'll tell you why. because it's not like this is the first time we've had a high public official98v that's been engaged in domestic violence. in fact, i did a little bit ofq research and, you know, there mcbride who was arrested and charged with domestic violence, entered a6e=f plea like ross mirkarimi did, was sentenced, yet he continued as a judge. by his colleagues to be presiding judge and continues to serve on the bench to this-çÑx( day. or how about the case of hayes-white. i have cued up on my phone the youtube videoqq;$ audio of the 1 call where her husband is calling in about domestic violence which i don't have it play for you. but the
, starting in 1996. there hasn't been -- the law has not changed one iota since i served on the commission. and during those years, we heard many cases of alleged official misconduct. but the reason you haven't heard about most of them is because we were instructed as follows, by both city attorney louise rene and herrera which is opposed to what the city attorney is claiming was the law in this case. we were instructed, unless the commission has found probable cause to believe that a provision of the charter or city ordinances relating to campaign finance, lobbying, conflicts of interest, or governmental ethics has been violated, the regulations are clear thati.z further action may be taken by the commission. he goes on to state, the charter does not2xi?y authorize the commission to impose any type of public censure upon individuals who have not committed a violation within the jurisdiction of the ethics commission. the ethics commission only has jurisdiction over thegg6.ñ local campaign and governmental conduct code. it does not have jurisdiction political reform act and definitely incl
who uphold and respects the law, as we are also expected to do so. there have been a string of recent domestic violence incidents in the media regarding high profile individuals who have been able to avoid harsh punishment. as a city, we must stand and make a statement that anyone, especially elected officials, will be held accountable for their actions. let us not forget, he did plead guilty to a crime. as a city, we must realize that the sheriff is a -- of his department. mirkarimi is seen as the leading example for his department and his employees. we deserve to be able to trust and respect our law enforcement officers. victims of domestic violence have the right to be protected by the sheriff's department without fear that our issues will be taken lightly. by removing sheriff ross mirkarimi from the board -- i'm sorry, from office, the board of supervisors will affirm and ensure that any official will be accountable to the public they serve, and exhibit an appropriate standard of conduct. please make the right decision for the san francisco residents you serve, and vote for the re

about to vote. let's switch live inside to the board of supervisors. >> the city law enforcement, we need to think about checks and balances and city government and how we are holding the will of the voters. i think it goes without saying that no one here condones any form of domestic violence, whether it will psychological or verbal or physical abuse. all of them could be in play tonight. the city we try to protect victims, support rehabilitation of perpetrators and do to prevent an incident of domestic violence in the future. i think it goes without saying that as public officials, we are expected to be models of good behavior. everyone knows that none of us are perfect. there is a reasonable expectation on greater officials in our private practices. this vote is not about affirming that we are setting moral standards for elected officials. what we are here to decide is whether or not sheriff mirkarimi is guilty of official misconduct and that's removal from office. while ethics commission rejected most of the charges, the board voted 4-1 on the basis he pled not guilty. the mayor

, and entertaining the notion that domestic violence does not relate to the duties of a chief law enforcement officer. it's important, i think, to remember that this misconduct is very significant. it is not just a mistake. it's not a mistake on december 31st. it's a crime. and it's a serious crime, with a serious sentence. >> president chiu: continue please. thank you. >> and the sheriff's -- that domestic violence doesn't matter when it's committed by a sheriff. he wants you to believe that the voters would have you remove a sheriff if he commits petty theft of office supplies, but not if he threatens the life of a family member. that can't be right. i'm just for clarification of the audience, i'm not suggesting that's what he$Ñ, did. i'm posing hypotheticals.(@=( my mistake. >> president chiu: ladies and gentlemen, we need to have order in the chamber. i ask you to respect that. that is the rule of this chamber. counsel, please proceed. >> thank;mh you. every sheriff's deputy in the san francisco sheriff's department knows thatrj:c if ty did the same thing, that sheriff mirkarimi did on decembe
